I don't think sea salt counts as an herb, but it is still an ingredient. Anyways, just my little snippet of information.

Sea Salt - Purification, Clarity, and Insight. I use salt closely to how I would use white sage, however salt is my preffered physical purifer.

Pepper - I am assuming you mean like pepper corns, as in the kind you would find as a table seasoning, like table salt. I don't usually use this herb but I would use it for cursing, or banishment; banishment of any kind really.

Cinnamon - Love, Lust, Beauty, Protection. A favorite of mine, wonderfully useful and wonderfully tasting. It's used for many things through a lot of traditions, or paths.

Parsley - Love, Balance, Emotional Stability, Trust, Growth, Clarity - this is a curious herb. I classify it like I would basil - a well rounded herb with many, many, uses.

Ceyenne Pepper - Hate, Lust, Agony, Protection - As you can see, my associations are back and forth. Ceyenne is a 'tough love' type of.,well I guess, herb for me. It is very powerful - even in powder form - as a protective agent from those who mean harm of any kind. It's also very potent when cursing or hexing people.
